Once in every of my cycles, probably ever since DD turned 1 (she's now 17.5MO), my milk supply decreases. Sometimes drops moderately, sometimes (like this time, right now) it is reduced almost to drops . Such a spell lasts for days. It is frustrating. My DD only drinks BM and water and she doesn't even like drinking water. She is still nursing 8-12x/day.
Also, while all the previous times it occurred around the time of ovulation and by the time I started my period my supply was almost back to normal, this time it occurred about a week AFTER ovulation and has lasted till now, the second day into my period (it's been a week). My supply is still nowhere near normal.
I read on kellymom about taking a calcium supplement. But I'm already taking 1000mg calcium with magnesium daily because I am dairy-free. I have also been drinking Mother's Milk Tea and started taking fenugreek yesterday since I'm SO impatient to get my supply back.
And I don't know why I started having this problem after DD turned 1 whereas my period came back at 2 months PP and I never had this problem at all.
Does anyone else have the same problem? Any input would be much appreciated!
